Noticed that there aren't really any JC-L threads on here so I thought I'd make one cause I find his music absolutely mesmerising (his In Summer EP and Songs of Forgiveness album in particular). - Does anyone have any his physicals or has anyone been to one of his shows?

big fan here. I have numerous physicalizations and have seen him live once (1). 
 

“conversations with myself” has had hours and hours and hours of plays throughout my life and is up there for me in favorite records based on how often it’s been a balm for me in trying times.

Big fan too. I believe I have a cassette or two, maybe a CD ?

I really like his stuff. Picked up a few bits on vinyl and CD over the years. Saw him perform at Cafe Oto back in 2011 (I think), and picked up the DVD  'Within Mirrors' that night. The gig was accompanied by visuals from Clipson, so serves as a nice reminder. Wicked gig, blissed out fuzz and hypnotic visuals.

new to me. check in it out. kinda shoegazey. dope

Yeah his stuff is very versatile, some shoegazey stuff, some more ambient stuff, and some more four tet-like stuff with clicky wooden noises and stuff. All equally amazing!!

I think I got into him via the Grouper connection, its been nice seeing him expand from digital noise of his earlier stuff, to a wider range of syles, but all with the same comforting feel. Tracing Back The Radiance was a mastery of barely there minimalism.

Big fan of JCL’s work. Own a few on vinyl - songs of forgiveness and remembrance, 13 moons and on the echoing green. Was also into his former band, Tarentel, who were one of the more interesting acts to have emerged out of the post rock scene.

I've never really heard any Tarentel, any recommends on where to start?

From bone to satellite is their debut, which is also best starting off point. Then the following records below is where they get progressively more abstract:

Ephemera (a collection of their EPs)

Yooooo I had no idea he had a project with Liz Harris. Mad stuff.
